R. Kelly’s perverted ways have seemingly caught up with him. The disgraced singer has been indicted on 10 charges of aggravated criminal sexual abuse by the Cook County State’s Attorney. His victims allegedly include four victims, three of which are minors, The Chicago Sun Times reports. A no-bail arrest warrant was approved for Kelly’s arrest.
After an intense investigation, popular lawyer Michael Avenatti obtained VHS footage of Kelly allegedly having sex with a 14-year-old that he turned over to authorities. He took to Twitter to celebrate Kelly’s indictment. Each charge carries a seven year max sentence.
According to Avenatti, details about his investigation will be revealed in a press conference around 4pm today.
Kelly’s atrocities were exposed in the recent Lifetime documentary Surviving R. Kelly giving much steam to the #MuteRKelly movement.

“Even seventeen years of reporting hasn’t been enough to turn as bright a spotlight on [R.]Kelly as the one exposing many others, because no one, it seems, matters less in our society than young black women.” Jim DeRogatis
